Greenland is a true hunting and wilderness paradise. In co-operation with the Greenland Caribou company, Lax-á has ensured the exclusive hunting rights in an area of 500 square kilometers on the coast of Southwest Greenland.
In the summer of 2012, Lax-á erected the first proper hunting- and fishing camp on the Southwest Coast of Greenland, the first ever permanent hunting-and fishing camp in Greenland. A total of twelve sleeping cabins (twin bed) built around a dining lodge with plenty of room for bigger groups.
The dining lodge is equipped with a kitchen, a gas BBQ and a charcoal BBQ. Meals are prepared by the camp chef – most of the menu originates in area (caribou meat, arctic char and fish from the sea). The camp has running water, WC, showers, sauna, BBQ and a fully equipped kitchen. All this and still a wilderness camp – equates to a really a unique experience!

Caribou hunting in Greenland
The hunting opportunities in Greenland are vast and very impressive. With the choice of hunting caribou, arctic hare, musk ox, seal, ptarmigan and marine birds, it caters to the hunter. Our local guides are outstanding and know the area extremely well. All this along with the magnificent nature of Greenland, truly makes this a hunting “paradise”!
This vast hunting concession in the south of Greenland also offers endless fishing opportunities on hundreds of rivers and lakes. In addition to the hunting/shooting, hunters have also the choice of going fishing for the sea run Arctic char whenever they like. Not only is this a „paradise“ for the hunter but for the angler as well!

We fly 3 hours from Reykjavik, Iceland to Narsarsuaq, Greenland. A perfect oppertunity to make a combo tour of these two Northern destinations!
Arrival day (day 1)
The hunting season is from end of July – throughout September. There is an option of 3/4/6 or 7 night’s stay (or even longer), based on the flight schedule for the Narsarsuaq flight from Reykjavik. The 6 night’s stay is only possible in July and August.
Depart from Reykjavik, Iceland at 14:45, arrive in Narsarsuaq, Greenland at 15:45, local time. Our representative will welcome hunters at the airport and take by boat, on a very scenic 2 and half hour boat ride. There will either be a short stopover in the village of Narsaq where hunters can stock up on personal supplies (toiletries, beverages) or this can be done upon arrival in Narsarsuaq. It is also a possibility to take helicopter transfers between Narsarsuaq and the Lax-á camp for an additional fee, takes 30 minutes. When arriving at the camp the guides and the staff welcome the hunters with a hot dinner. In the evening hunters settle into the camp. If they wish, they can go to the nearest river and fish until nightfall.
Hunting – and fishing (day 2,3,4,5,6… – depends on the length of the stay)
Hunters hunt the whole coastline with their guide until they spot the right trophy that they desire to take. Breakfast and dinner is served at the lodge, but while hunting, lunch packages will be brought. When the hunter has taken his trophy, the rest of the time can be spent fishing. It is also possible for the hunter to take another trophy, paid either beforehand or directly on the spot. Other hunting/shooting is also available upon request. We do recommend that anglers take some time off to go on sightseeing around the area. Some can be arranged by the local guides but some have to be booked in advance. Please turn to the staff at Lax-á for further assistance.
Departure day (day 4,5, 7 or 8…)
Breakfast and preparation for departure. Transfer to Narsarsuaq airport. Check-in latest at 15:30, flight departure from Narsarsuaq to Reykjavik at 16:30, arrival at 21:30 local time in Iceland. At Reykjavik airport our driver welcome you in Iceland and take you to a hotel of your choice.
Please bear in mind, in Greenland nature prevails and the time can be irrelevant. Due to these conditions it is not always possible to be in full control of the time planning and therefore flexibility is important. Safety is always our main concern.
